A simple, yet humorously,written picture book about a mischievous, little fish with a hat that is not his. It’s an unexpected and fresh story told from an underwater perspective about a big fish searching the sea for his extra small hat, taken by another fish while he’s sleeping. The storyline is driven by very human aspects, which makes it all the more comical.
